I have been working at VMware

Pros

Energetic, growing rapidly, young, exciting, cutting-edge, industry leader, tons of opportunity, great collaborative culture.

Cons

Because it is growing so rapidly, internal systems and processes are not always in place. However if you see opportunity in challenges, you will succeed here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the growth coming!

    I worked at VMware

    Pros

    VMware is a terriific company to work for if you want to work for the virtualization industry leader with a great vision.

    Cons

    Work you will because there is not a very good work/life balance at VMware. While it's nice to be so busy, especially in this economy, sometimes a good employee can burn out.

    I have been working at VMware

    Pros

    Leader, Technology, Money, chaos brings opportunities.

    Paul Maritz: He's someone you can believe in: down to earth visionary. trustworthy.

    He's the main reason to be in the company.

    Cons

    A lot of change in management culture, inability to fire incompetent people, grew quite fast.

    I've been here for 6 years, It was a very different place in the first 3 years, now it seems like VMWare's struggling to find it's soul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's OK to fire incompetent people.
